Little owl handbags

I found these adorable little handbags on Pinterest and decided to take advantage of my daughter's sick day. Normally my busiest day of the week, it has been relatively quiet. It is amazing how much sewing/laundry/dishes/cleaning you can get done when you have a few uninterrupted hours.

I bought the denim like fabric a while ago, but could never figure out what to do with it. I think I'm going to have to build up my 'pink' stash. It has dwindled considerably, ergo, these bags are not too girly. I ended up borrowing my mom's sewing machine for the zig zag.

If anyone is interested in making these bags, you can find the pattern on the Gingercake website.

And in case you are wondering, the white backing for the owl bag photo is the back of the quilt I hand quilted for my bed. The front is alternating blue and white strips. It needed to be washed, and today is the perfect day for air drying.


  1. Wow, perfect. Fortunately, I found your website!
